Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 04/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. They have come to learn more about the state of Japan, the Shogunate, and it's Scions. We will be having a Lunar New Year's celebration, a school dance, and a combat tournament with them!

~Breaking News~
The Shogun is Safe: In recent months, since the Ikko Ikki attack on Edo in the Spring not many people have seen the family of the Shogunate. Edo Castle, or at least what is left of it, has been under extremely tight lock and the security around Edo Castle has been tripled since the attack. As full re-building efforts are mid-way complete on Edo Castle reports on the current health and condition of the Shogunate are coming out. It is now known that the Shogun's sons, as well as various Edo Bugei students, helped to fight off the Ikko's invasion of Edo while the injured Shogun, a handful of guards, and his daughters and wife, hid in an undisclosed location. Stern criticism has come from citizens, as well as some in the Imperial Court, over the Shogun's lack of being on the front lines against the Ikko Ikki. However various regional lords and even the Emperor, have praised the Shogunate's response to the Ikko War as a whole. Saying that Shogunate samurai had been quickly and effectively dispatched through out the country.

A New Season: After a lot of struggle and hunting of rebel groups the Shogunate has declared that the Ikko Ikki threat can officially be viewed as over! While some smaller cells of Ikko rebels are still hiding through out the country, the war with the Ikko has been declared as over!

~World News~
Fall Has Come: Fall season has come to Asia. Many festivals will take place across various countries as Japan settles in to the new reality it faces after the Ikko war. Our country's samurai are not as strong as they should be, and the Shogunate is working extremely hard to change this!

England, France, and Germany Cease Fire: A cease fire has been declared in Europe between the warring triad of France, England, and Germany. While the cease fire is not expected to last long the three country's leaders have agreed that as the season shifts into fall and winter soon after the citizens of all three nations should focus on spending time with family and enjoying the holidays together.

~Japan News~
Yakuza and Ninja Aid: In a surprising twist the Yakuza and Ninja clans of Japan may end up being the unsung heroes of the post-Ikko war rebuilding efforts. The normally closed off groups have been contributing all kinds of resources and work hours to help rebuild the country. Names of all workers are expected to either be fake, or not given. However the works sent from both factions have been working side by side with the samurai of every province to help rebuild the nation. In some areas metsuke and Yakuza have even be seen sharing late night drinks with Iga shinobi.

Clans Declare Truces: In the wake of the Ikko attacks in the spring multiple clans had been viewed as being in a position to destroy one another. However, various clans, most notably the Maeda and Uesugi, also the Kuroda and Mori, have actually sent aid to one another in the wake of the Ikko assaults. At first the Mori clan seemed extremely hesitant to welcome Kuroda forces into the various cities they control, however the Kuroda forces seem to be accepting orders from the Mori forces.

Oda vs Imagawa Tensions Eased: It has now been confirmed that during the Ikko war in the spring a large contingent of Oda forces from Owari marched into Imagawa lands during a full scale battle between Imagawa and Ikko forces. The Imagawa troops, given the long history between the Oda and Imagawa clans, quickly steeled themselves to have to face two armies instead of one. Instead the Oda forces unleashed multiple volleys upon the attacking Ikko monks. The Oda army, sent by the current Oda lord in spite of multiple statements against him by the Shogunate's religious minister and current head of the Imagawa, provided full military aid to the Imagawa troops. It was reported that when Lord Imagawa demanded the Oda forces leave his domain the Oda generals gave full bows to the messenger carrying the demand and quickly returned back to Owari. While it took a few weeks for the message to be released, Lord Imagawa not only sent a message thanking Lord Oda, but also praised the Oda commanders. Some reports claim that the thank you letter from the Imagawa to the Oda was quote "heavily encouraged" by both Lords Maeda and Honda. Lord Imagawa has refused to officially comment on this report.

~Edo News~
Southern Edo Controversy: After many foreign nationals, mostly diplomats and soldiers, lost their lives in the Ikko attack on Edo this past spring various countries have reportedly considered closing down their embassy's in Edo and possibly canceling trade with Japan. Fortunately various merchants guilds in Osaka, as well as the ever diplomatic Todo and Niwa clans stepped in to aid in negotiations with the various foreign powers. What foreign nations are calling an utter lack of security, has resulted in the Shogunate having to pay large sums to various foreign powers. To date no countries have withdrawn embassies from Southern Edo. The daughters of various diplomatic embassies have been vocal in declaring support and thanks to the Shogunate samurai and Edo Bugei students for protecting them from what was apparently an Ikko general intent on creating a harem of foreign women.

Edo Bugei: Classes have resumed at Edo Bugei Academy! As many of you may know during the summer following the Ikko attack classes at the school had been canceled. Most of the student body had been sent back to their various provinces in order to help rebuild damaged towns and spend time with their loved ones. We are now reporting that the majority of the students body has returned to campus in order to start the new semester.

Ikko War Memorial: A large, granite memorial has been made on the recently repaired grounds of Edo Castle in order to honor those citizens and samurai that fell during the Ikko attack in the spring. The names of multiple samurai, and fallen Edo Bugei students, have been carved intoB the large granite triangle.
